Grrr. I'm so angry at myself for picking. I didn't know shit all about acne and I randomly get a couple big spots on chin, squeezed em before anywhere near due..this goes on and on for a few month and now im left with pretty bad acne all over my chin. looks like someone has a had a chainsaw to my face.

I havent picked for a good few weeks now, but what I'm asking, I have some red marks, same skin texture (no bumps/dints) from where I have been a douche in the past. I also have a couple of spots that are still active. What I want to know is, will theese marks there for life? i can't see them dinting my skin as they are just red/purple circles.

How can I speed up the healing process of the scars? What should I do?!?!

This sucks so bad...and I must remind you, this is pretty bad acne, not just a couple spots, its 9 month of picking/playing with chin area without having prior knowledge... please help.

I'm also very pale, and theese marks aswell as my current spots stick out like a sore thumb. The contast is so bad!

when you say picking, do you mean you squeezed the spots?

If you do not see any indents in them, than 99.99 % they aren't pitted scars. Most of the time, the scar occurs right after the lesion flattens (turns into a red mark)

Yay pale people!! :) I'm very fair skinned as well and I have red/dark scars. I highly recommend to not pick (they just inflame and stick out), I personally stick everything in god's creation on a rising zit, and try not to give into popping it. If I pop it, I put Neosporin and hydrocorisone on it to stop it from getting worse and it seems to help. Once there is no longer a scab/for all of your other scars I highly recommend scar gel (walgreens, Rite-aid, wal-mart etc) and to apply it a couple times a day where you have scars. I really think it has helped me, and being fair makes my marks stand out more. I also make a huge ordeal out of wearing sunscreen religiously, every single day. Try to find out what is causing your acne (chin acne is usually hormonal), and see a doctor about birth control/perscription acne treatment. It is easier to fix scars if you have the thing causing them out of the way.

I wish you luck and if you want advice/have questions message me. :)
